Default Belt Tensioner Replacement Ė Letís Do It! By Pelican Parts

The MINI Cooper S uses a serpentine belt to drive the various ancillary components on the engine. This includes the alternator, A/C compressor and the supercharger/water pump. The serpentine belt is kept in place by a small dampener and a coil spring mounted to the end of an idler pulley. This is called a belt tensioner. Over time, the serpentine belt can stretch. The tensioner setup is designed to allow a certain amount of flex to account for stretching as well as vibration.

With a socket set & serpentine belt tool, you are less than two hours away from replacing your tensioner!
